Child, Adolescent, and Family Behavioral Health Fellowship

The 2023 Child, Adolescent, and Family Behavioral Health Fellowship

We are in the midst of a special project to build universal screening, prevention, and intervention for behavioral health for children and adolescents in North Carolina. The Foundation for Health Leadership and Innovation’s Center of Excellence for Integrated Care, in partnership with the i2i Center for Integrative Health and the North Carolina Area Health Education Centers (NCAHEC), is working to improve the availability and accessibility of behavioral health to children and their families with support from The Duke Endowment and BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina.

As of January 2023, we successfully recruited a second cohort of North Carolina licensed behavioral health professionals and graduate students interested in strengthening their knowledge and skillset working with children and families to participate in the 2023 Child, Adolescent, and Family Behavioral Health Fellowship program. Fellows completed a year long training series and with available mentorship from the 2022 Cohort Members.

Over the past two years, we have been able to educate and nurture 75 behavioral health clinicians/mental health therapists and behavioral health graduate students through the Child, Adolescent, and Family Behavioral Health Fellowship. Understanding and honoring the rates of burnout and exhaustion among our providers, the Fellowship provided a supportive and psychologically safe space for clinicians to talk about their struggles and their successes.


The fellowship training focuses on mental health and substance use prevention, assessment, and intervention for children and adolescents and their families. There is synchronous virtual training for two hours each month, and a monthly one-hour teleECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) group to discuss clinical work and seek consultation on cases.


Fellows complete a total of 36 hours of certified continuing education at no cost to fellows. The training curriculum is informed by evidence-based literature, as well as by information collected from regularly held workgroup meetings of child and family advocates, consumers and families, and providers advising on policy to support child and adolescent behavioral health wellness. Fellows commit approximately three hours per month from January to December 2023.
